Eight people have died in a fire at a building in south-western Paris, fire service officials say.
Nearly 30 people – including three firefighters – were injured. One person is in a serious condition.
The death toll could still increase because rescue operations were still in progress on the upper floors of the eight-storey building, a fire service spokesman told the AFP news agency.
It is not clear what caused the blaze in Paris' upmarket 16th arrondissement.
A female suspect has been detained by the police. The Paris prosecutor, Rémi Heitz, says the fire may have been deliberately started.
